The Sleep Keepers
Born In A Taxi and Kinetic Theatre
The Sleep Keepers have watched the world become too busy, too stressful, too frantic, and let sleep go astray. And when sleep goes astray, life gets a little wonky.
From the realm of the deep night, the Sleep Keepers have come with their bed of dreams, to tuck you in and take you for a ride into the world of bedtime stories and lullabies. Close your eyes and drift away….
Comedy, song, music, story and the gentle art of slumber are woven into this roving act that travels between a performance for many and a unique experience for one or two. Be invited into the bed on wheels, choose to be sung to, read to, told a tale, and let the Sleepkeepers take you on a journey to rest and inspire the weary traveller.
Suitable for day and night, the mobile bed is illuminated and accompanied by a musical soundtrack that creates a playful and mysterious atmosphere wherever it roams.
